we got bam? >> i asked my children to come. you can imagine what they said. >> we're excited to have bambino. we're actually going to use him in the chat for something, aren't we? >> are we? oh, that! yes, yes. >> do you want to do it now or wait? >> well, there's a study, basically, that says we all know dogs are man's best friend, woman's best friend, too. they always have a sense of when you're hurting. they'll come over and lick your wounds and get close to you and snuggle. so we wanted to test that. they say it works even with strangers. >> they say if a stranger cries in the presence of a dog, even if the dog doesn't know the other person, that the dog reacts to the other person. so we are going to put this to the test. you hold him and i'm going to start crying.
okay. ready? what's he doing? >> he's having booze day tuesday. >> hello? >> get me away from the crazy woman. >> maybe he knew i was fake crying. >> yes, yes. if i did it, he'd go crazy. >> he would? >> of course. >> he loves you so much. if you want to get off the couch because you're so sick and tired of your body and your flab, we all are there. here's someone who is going to motivate you to get off the couch. this is unbelievable. >> it is unbelievable. and it happened because she went bathing suit shopping. when she was in her 50s and was so upset about how she felt about herself and how she looked. well, she is 75-year-old earnestine shepard. >> look at her body! >> she is 75. she is the world's oldest female body builder. >> so she decided at 56 she had enough. she started with the weights and started running.
she got in shape. >> but at 71 is when she started body building. at 71. she gets up at 2:30 in the morning and runs ten miles before she goes to the gym. hoda, you're an amateur. >> look at her. she's 75. >> she is a professional body builder. she is 5'5", weighs 140 pounds and has 9% to 10% body fat. >> look, the whole thing is, sometimes especially when you reach a certain point, you're like, i'm stuck with it. it's because i'm going through menopause. >> we make all kinds of excuses. >> we do. i cannot believe she gets up at 2:30 to go running. she is so motivated. if you think you can't do it, look at her body. >> i told the story of my mom when she went shopping for a bathing suit in rehoboth years and years ago. she struggles into a bathing suit. this lovely lady is helping her. then these young girls are in the stall next to her in their little string bikinis and come out. the lady coaxes my mom out.
come on, come on. the two little girls in their darling little bodies are going, oh, having fun, looking in one mirror. my mother comes out and just stands there in front of her mirror. the lady was so sweet. she looks at my mom, oh, honey, we had our turn. >> but we want another turn. >> i know. that's the trouble. and earnestine has proven that's the point joanie should have said, i want another turn. let's get my mom to be a body builder at 82. >> you can retool your body. >> you can. >> in middleboro, massachusetts, they decided they had it with people swearing in public. they had it up to here. they proposed a fine, $20 fine. they say it's not meant to censor people but supposed to crackdown on that language. >> it's like cleaning up litter. it's changing the whole ambiance
of the environment. >> if you're ever walking down the street and someone is on the phone in the middle of a conversation and they are dropping the f-bomb and everything all over because they are in this heated moment. they don't realize everybody in the world is walking past them. i have to tell you. i've spoken with people a lot of times, they get animated, they use curse words, it doesn't bother me. hearing it walking past it for some reason only hearing half the conversation and a stranger screaming, it makes you -- >> extremely rude. lots of times there are little kids and stuff around, too. it's not an environment anybody wants to live in. >> i wonder if $20 is a good thing. >> they are going to vote on it. they can't do it without a town vote. >> ballgames, if you've taken your child to a football game or baseball game or any kind of game, everyone goes crazy. did you ever have that with your kids with other people cursing around you guys? >> you know, i just think in the last ten years it's gotten so bad.
what do you think, bambino? did you put him over by me? are you doing it on purpose? that doesn't count! >> you've got to be careful because bambino is known to hump things. >> thanks for the warning. okay. when you go to a restaurant -- >> he's our humper. all our children are different and we love them all. >> if you've been to a restaurant recently, there are certain i guess normal complaints people have about restaurants. >> right. usually service mostly. >> now there's something new out there. people are tired of the noise level. ever been to a restaurant and you can't hear the person sitting next to you and it sounds like this? >> a table of eight or something and you're trying to talk to the person and say something. then you introduce hearing aids that people are wearing because a lot of our friends are wearing hearing aids these days. it's just ridiculous. then you get hoarse. >> some restaurants, some aren't
that crowded but the way the ceiling is or something, you can't have a conversation. >> they think there is a science behind it though. they say if you play loud music it prompts the customers to chew faster, order more drinks, finish their meal sooner. ♪ >> oh, my god. he's sexy and he knows it. >> in case you're wondering if the noise level is too high for you, there is a website called yelp and one called open table. they tell you about the decibel levels. >> they should listen to people. they want to be cool, but you don't want customers avoiding you because -- joanne was telling the story about a restaurant she and her family
love where she lives in montclair. three times, three different times of the day, they went to see if it's different and it wasn't. it was always the same. you've got to serve your customers. >> you sure do. okay. now, there is another study, yet another one out there. it says -- it talks about sex and fashion. it says that women think about fashion 91 times a day. many more times than they think about sex. >> that's once every 11 minutes and 23 seconds. >> that's ridiculous. how is that possible? who is thinking about fashion 91 times a day? >> i don't think we tend to think of it as fashion, but if you're walking by somebody you say i love that dress. i drive on 48th every morning and i look in the michael kors and saks fifth avenue. something catches your eye. >> or you compliment somebody's shoes. we think about sex ten times a
day. i don't, do you? >> no. when you've had it as much as i have, you know. >> it's never going to work. >> that was weird. at a ball game yesterday, there was a rain delay at the ball game. you sit there and you watch these rain delays. there was a man who decided to have fun with the rain delay. so we went running out on to the field. he was sliding all over it. i was like, who is that crazy old man? i just saw the video. you know who it is? >> that crazy old man is bill murray. >> i guess he's part owner of that time and decided he would have fun with it. >> i bet the crowd went crazy. there he goes, sliding into home. >> crazy. >> have you ever met bill murray? >> i think we -- didn't we have him on? >> i don't know if we've had him
on since i joined you, hoda, but many times years ago. he is a character. oh, my gosh, he's a character. that's bill murray. great actor. >> we have some surprises in store for you which i already gave away, i think. >> don't read hoda's tweets. >> read them. then you know who is coming up on the show in the fashion segment. >> this will be fun, too. when you're married with children, it's important to be on the same wavelength when you discipline your kids. we don't want to say good cop/bad cop, but when parents disagree we'll talk about that. then sara treats her dad to a big city father's day celebration. sara's dad is here. she made him work out? >> that is sweet.
with this issue. they are the parents of 8-year-old triplet boys. >> enough said. >> it can become problematic when parents disagree when it comes to disciplining, right? >> absolutely. because we all disagree from time to time. but when it's frequent, it puts a strain on the marriage. >> oh, definitely. >> and the kids get mixed messages on what behavior is appropriate and expected. they also feel guilty because they know their behavior is creating this conflict between mom and dad. >> so when did you start to see the problem with your three boys? >> i think probably always -- when you have triplets, it's busy from the word "go." >> i would think. >> i don't know you're necessarily aware there is a problem until -- >> nikki, you're the laid-back one and steve, you're the more disciplinarian. >> do you remember the first thing you argued over? >> not specifically, but it's a gradual possession.
>> you want to do it your way, steve, you want to do it your way. so what happens? if the kids leave a total mess on the floor and going about their merry way, how do you resolve that problem? >> i'll try to get them to help me pick it up. if they don't, i usually end up picking it up. because we're busy, want to go out. >> steve, what do you do? >> i'm more insistent they clear up their own mess they made. >> i have a theory that it's just an english problem. this only happens in the uk. our american children are delightful. >> it only happened since we've come to america. >> sure. blame it on the ugly yanks. >> what should they do in a situation like that? >> you know, they've grown up with different types of parenting styles. sometimes we fall into that trap of, well, that's the way i grew up and i turned out fine. >> boys will be boys. >> we know that rarely works. we don't want to fight about which style is right or wrong. we want to bring out the best in both of those experiences. >> and you have five things parents can do.
let's run through them. they're very good. >> the first one, we want to start with the areas which we agree. make a list of those. they are on the same page about manners. >> manners, behavior in public and behavior in general. >> if your kids step out of line? >> we remove them from the situation. >> you agree on that one. >> yes. >> that's good they are on the same page. build on that. >> boys are going to know mom and dad are not going to put up with that. they can't divide and conquer. >> strategy number two, start small with the non-negotiables. one of theirs can be the boys need to pick up their toys and stuff by lunchtime and dinnertime. anything that isn't picked up mom and dad will take care of but will go in a box and be unavailable for the next week.
>> when you tell them to clean up, they clean it up? >> they do. they pretend to listen. >> do they actually do the clean up? >> they do. >> third strategy is have a signal. nonverbal. tug on the ear, time-out. we disagree on this. we need to talk about it away from the kids. >> you say 95% of those situations are not urgent that you have to deal with it right then. you don't have to deal with it in the heat of the moment. give yourself a breather to figure out how to handle it. after that is the most important, we want to commit to communicate. i want you to take one night a week when the kids are in bed and sit down and talk about your progress. how are we doing in these areas? talk about behaviors that bubbled up over the past week. then have a plan. how are we going to deal with them in the future? >> i think that's great. have a plan. tell us the fifth. >> trouble getting on the same page we need to get to a class or get a third party resource. it's too important not to get it right. >> you're lovely parents, by the way. >> we are the best parents we can be. >> just wait till they're teenagers. you have so much to look forward
to. >> i can't think about that. up next, sara turns her dad into a manhattan metrosexual. >> oh, my god! at happened to my? [ girl voice ] i dunno. hey chief, did you take my sub?

>> if i would have known this is all it takes to make you happy, we would have made these for years. >> so far i'm seeing a really good time today but it feels more like a daughter's day than a father's day. so we have to man this up a little bit. we are going to give my dad a style upgrade. for that we called in the big guns from "gq." >> here's your first look for the dad on the go. we've got something fun but not too west palm beach. >> dad on the go. now you just have to have someplace to go. woo! dad, look at you. dad, your butt looks good. mom's going to appreciate that. >> it looks good. >> woo! this is great. >> you look fantastic. >> i love the polka dots. >> look like the commodore of a yacht club.
